della reese fashionFormer Touched by an Angel actress Della Reese is fed up with the clothing available to plus-sized women like herself, so she's launching her own line. Reese, who is 5 feet, 2 inches tall and weighs 200 pounds, said the only clothes available to women of her size don't have any "oomph". Her new line will feature cocktail, office, and casual clothes in an array of bright colors and fits. Her line, Della Reese Fashions, will launch on April 4th on Home Shopping Network.

I agree with her premise. The clothing made for plus size women is either a larger style version of the clothing made for the size one models (which doesn't look flattering no matter how much material you add, for a larger woman), OR it is a type of tent with holes cut out for legs and arms... There are some expensive lines of clothing with some flattering fits for women who are plus size. However, you can't get those clothes anywhere except catalogs and expensive mall stores... The only exception is Lane Bryant. I hope she does get the clothing into retail outlets like Target. I do think though that I never ever wanted to dress like her so I will be very interested to see what she comes up with... Looking forward to it with hope.
